When I first visited the Imperial Palace, I was quite confused by the entrance procedure…
Although there is no entrance fee, you have to line up (when it’s full) and get a plastic card at a guard house, which you have to return when you leave the Imperial Palace again.
It’s to be sure at the end of the day, that all visitors left the grounds.
This already shows, that it is not like the other gardens in Tokyo… It’s the public part of the Emperors Imperial Palace!
Once you entered, you need to walk for a while until you reach the garden described in our eBook.
It has a very long history, and changed several times. The area and pond were restored after a picture of the design from Kobori Enshū and over several years, the last Emperors added some features they liked.
With all the knowledge about the history and background of the area, the garden becomes even more stunning!
And it is one of the few places in Tokyo, where you can stand next to these huge and impressive castle walls!
Although our eBook covers the Ninomaru only, there is so much more to explore on the grounds. The Imperial Palace is really worth a visit when you’re in Tokyo!
